Morphogrammata. The Lettered Art of Optatian. Figuring cultural transformations in the age Constantine and beyond - 01-02-03/07/2015, Köln (Germany)

31.05.2015

 

International workshop supported by the Internationales Kolleg Morphomata (Universitaet zu Koeln) and the Department of Classics, King’s College London. This three-day workshop explores one of antiquity’s most fascinating (and most maligned) artists: Publilius Optatianus Porfyrius. ‘Optatian’ is hardly a household name among classicists and historians. But Optatian’s picture-poems uniquely figure the cultural dynamics of the early fourth century AD.
To have any hope of understanding Optatian’s highly lettered artefacts, a range of critical perspectives is required. The Cologne workshop consequently aims to stimulate a new sort of interdisciplinary dialogue, bringing together historical, literary, philosophical, art historical and theological viewpoints to assess Optatian’s poetics.
